    Here is how i do it

    Quick solution to Pureftpd 553 error


    After setting up an account with Pureftpd, you are likely to be greeted by an error 553:

    Pureftpd error 553 Can't open that file: Permission denied

    It has to do with the user and group permission. Solution:

    1. Edit your Pure-ftpd account and set UID and GID to www (or any other).
    2. SSH to root console. and run
    chown -R www:www /home/backup

    Replace "/home/backup" with your ftp folder. This command assigns userid www, usergroup www to be the the owner of that folder and all the folder underneath it (R = recursive)
